This year’s global green roof celebration is on World Green Roof Day, 6 June 2021. A credit to its organisers and partners across the green roof industry, this will be a chance to shout from the greenest of rooftops, with publicity and encouragement for the professional installation of green roofs on buildings and roof gardens.
And there is a well-deserved place for artificial green roofs alongside their natural counterparts. For example, EverRoof’s collaboration on the IKEA Greenwich rooftop garden recently received the 2020 UK Roofing Award for Green Roofing for contractor Bridgman & Bridgman.
A high traffic, low maintenance and evergreen complement to the project, the EverRoof® artificial green roof system, tested and accredited to BS and EU fire standards specifically for flat roofing and wind speed tested to 100 mph, provides the perfect communal area between paving, raised urban farming beds and the sedum-covered areas. Blending the transition between nature and function, the artificially turfed section of the garden extends the sleek lines and allows access to visitors all year round.
In a built environment where biodiversity, community, health and social well-being are key drivers, an artificial roof expands the functionality and appeal of an all-year-round lush green expanse, requiring less maintenance and looking great in all weathers
